(y^5)^3(y^3)^2/(y^4)^4

Power of a power: When an exponent has an exponent, both are multiplied and applied to the base of the first.

Example: (y^5)^3 = (y^15)

When multiplying terms with exponents, the exponents are added:

(y^15)(y^6) = (y^21)

When dividing, they're subtracted:

(y^21)/(y^16) = y^5

I think this is correct; Bob or the like will come along and beat me if it isn't. :P
